Cats Around the World

Cats Around the World
Ted Meyer
September 2003
Fully illustrated in 4-color
6 x 6

Cats Around the World is a hilarious and irreverent look at the quirks and cultural nuances of dozens of countries around the world—all from the point of view of our furry friends. Featuring the whimsical full color illustrations of author Ted Meyer, each entry features a wonderfully rendered cat outfitted in the traditional native dress of the country. On the facing page, fascinating facts about the nation are offered, including: the official language of the country, its location, delightful tidbits about the role of cats in their culture, an illustration of their flag . . . even the translation of the word “cat” in their native tongue! So take a trip around the world with your a one-of-a-kind tour guide—Le Chat!

As demonstrated in his now classic book The Butt Hello: and other ways my cats drive me crazy, author Ted Meyer depicts cats in a startlingly original manner that is both insightful and hilarious. This wonderful book will appeal to a wide audience, without pandering to the reader with the sickeningly sweet humor so often found in books of this genre. Instead, it is smart and funny—witness his take on Spain (Picasso’s Guernica re-imagined from the point of view of a cat).
